Students have fun and make friends in Mizzou clubs


When alumni think back on their time at Mizzou, they realize that the experience of attending a large public research university extends well beyond the classroom. Because MU is so diverse both academically and socially, students are exposed to new people and new opportunities almost every day.

For a student from rural Missouri and a St. Louis city slicker, sharing a dormitory room can open up a new world view. Intramural sports teams allow students to indulge their individual athletic passions from volleyball to ultimate Frisbee. Almost every academic department at MU sponsors a club that lets students immerse themselves in the subjects that interest them the most.

Here’s a look at a few of the student organizations that add to the student experience at MU.

Adobe Flash version 8, or higher, and Java Script are required to view the slide show for this feature story.

Although not pictured here, across campus there are nearly 600 student clubs, including dozens of religious-affiliated organizations; others are devoted to chess, computer-game design, concrete canoe design and building formula racing cars. One student organization, called the Triangle Coalition, provides a political outlet and educational resources for bisexual, gay, lesbian and transgender people, and for those who are interested in non-heterosexual issues.

There also are clubs for aspiring pilots, target shooters and barbecue aficionados. There is the MU Skeptics, Atheist, Secular Humanist and Agnostics Club, and one called Color Me Wild for students who “dye their hair unnatural colors.”
